'Family Guy'

The episode: "Turban Cowboy" What happened: Just hours after two bombs exploded at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon, a clip purporting to be from "Family Guy" was being circulated online that seemed to indicate that the animated series had eerily predicted the race bombing in an episode that aired a month before. While all the scenes in the clip were from the same episode, they had been cleverly re-edited to make it appear predictive of the tragedy. Show creator Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter to call the mash-up clip "abhorrent," and Fox pulled the episode from Fox.com and Hulu.com.
